Russia 2018: Players’ agents attempting to influence my World Cup list – Gernot Rohr

Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr, has revealed how some agents have attempted to influence his choice of players for the national team ahead of Monday’s deadline of naming a 35-man provisional squad for the World Cup.

Rohr admitted that there has been renewed pressure from these agents as the price of their clients would rise if they are included on the roster.

However, Rohr has made it clear he has no intention of dropping the players that qualified Nigeria for the tournament in Russia.

He told Channels TV:
"Some agents are calling me or sending me messages about their players, they want me to take them."

"They try to do some things but they see that I don’t accept their proposal. I have a look, sometimes, they try to work for the players which is normal."

"I have never been under pressure, I never got money proposal to take one player because they know my reputation, 45 years in professional football I never did it."
